LASIK complications

In addition to the possible complications previously listed for laser eye surgery, the LASIK procedure may rarely be associated with other complications:

Flap Damage or Loss

Instead of creating a hinged flap of tissue on the central cornea, the entire flap could come off. If this were to occur it could be replaced after the laser treatment. However, there is a risk that the flap could be damaged or lost.

Distorted Flap

Irregular healing of the corneal flap could create a distorted corneal shape, resulting in a decrease of best-corrected vision.

It must be noted that although complications of laser eye surgery are rare your surgeon must inform you about them prior to treatment
